Got, Not Got: The Lost World of Newcastle United is an Aladdin's cave of memories and memorabilia, guaranteed to whisk you back to St James' Park's fondly remembered "Golden Age" of mud and magic—as well as a Mags-mad childhood of miniature tabletop games and imaginary, comic-fueled worlds. The book recalls a more innocent era of soccer, lingering longingly over relics from the good old days—Toon stickers and petrol freebies, league ladders, big-match programs, and much more—revisiting lost soccer culture, treasures, and pleasures that are 100 per cent Newcastle United. If you were a Junior Magpie, one of the army of obsessive soccer kids at any time from the Joe Harvey era to the early days of the Premier League, then this is the book to recall the mavericks—Macdonald, Mirandinha, and Gascoigne; Keegan, Quinn, and Waddle—and the marvels of the lost world of soccer .
